If you have a shot in your fantasy league, now is the time to get aggressive. You've spent time and money to get to where you are now, and if you are in striking distance, don't let up! It's all about categories now if you are in a standard roto league. Head to head is much of the same, but leans more towards balance. We have been taking a look at who might be avialable in your league. With the guards done, time to look at small forwards that may be available. We have identified the best that are available in more than 50% of Flea Flicker leagues.

Available Small Forwards (% owned in Flea Flicker leagues)
Lamar Odom- Dallas Mavericks 49%- Shawn Marion is banged up (knee), that combined with a season high in rebounds, may point to Odom gearing up for the postseason.
Wilson Chandler- Denver Nuggets 36%- The top priority for my team this week. With Danilo Gallinari out for remainder of the regular season with a broken thumb, Chandler is a perfect fit for most looking for a SF.
Chase Budinger- Houston Rockets 36%- Yes, Budinger is much more than a contestant on All-Star weekend. Budinger had been receiving better than normal starter minutes, but Courtney Lee is making a move.
Richard Jefferson- Golden State Warriors 27%- How will a trade from a serious playoff contender to a potential lottery team effect an aging star? It's the opposite of what you might think as RJ is getting more minutes than he has in years.
Tayshaun Prince- Detroit Pistons 26%- Prince's numbers have been up and down, what you might expect from an vet on the downside of his career, stuck on a team in perpetual rebuild. If given the minutes, he can still get 'er done.
Corey Maggette- Charlotte Bobcats 25%- Maggette is the only legit scorer on the Bobcats, but has been suffering from an ailing back. Keep an eye on Maggette's back, if healthy, Paul Silas seems committed to getting him minutes... and the ball.
Gordon Hayward- Utah Jazz 21%- If you have been pondering giving Hayward a look, now is the time. Josh Howard is out for the season and Ty Corbin seems committed to giving the "future" a look. This bodes well for Hayward and others, like Enes Kanter, Derrick Favors and Alec Burks.
Mike Dunleavy- Milwaukee Bucks 21%- I grabbed Dunleavy this week as an injury replacement for Andray Blatche. Dunleavy is posting above average numbers while continuing to get inconsistent and less than average minutes. Dunleavy is posting numbers you would expect from a scoring point guard, while qualifying in most leagues at both guard and forward.
Wesley Johnson- Minnesota Timberwolves 19%- Johnson has seen an increase in minutes since Ricky Rubio went down for the sesaon. Michael Beasley is still around after the Lakers got cold feet, but it is Derrick Williams who is a threat to Johnson's numbers.
Alonzo Gee- Cleveland Cavaliers 14%- Gee's solid numbers have caught the eye of coach Byron Scott who wants the Cavailers to extend his time in Cleveland. Gee has multi-position eligibility and is putting up numbers you might expect from a "poor man's" Ron Harper.
